    The Jaguars returned home to play their 5th and final Preseason game against the Dallas Cowboys and managed to push their home record to 3-0.

    The Cowboys got the ball first and were moving down the field but Tony Romo ended up throwing an INT to Jags SS Courtney Greene. A few plays later, Maurice Jones-Drew would take off for a 50 yard TD run giving Jacksonville a 7-0 lead.

    The teams would trade possessions a few times after that but Dallas would eventually tie the game in the middle of the 2nd quarter with an 18 yard pass from Romo to Jason Witten. The Jags would get the ball back and drive down the field but would end up settling for a 45 yard FG from Josh Scobee and a 10-7 lead with just 1:05 left in the 2nd. The Cowboys came back out firing, and on their first play, Romo connected on a 62 yard pass to Dez Bryant and a couple plays after that, Felix Jones scampered 18 yards for a 14-10 lead with just 0:52 left. Jacksonville still had all of their timeouts though so they came out in the shotgun to see what they could do. Luke McCown led an efficient drive picking up chunks of yardage and eventually hit Marcedes Lewis with a 22 yard TD pass to take a 17-14 lead into the half.

    The scoring would slow down in the 2nd half as both team's defense tightened up. The Jags would end up adding another TD off of an 11 yard run by MJD with 2:39 left in the 3rd. However, Josh Scobee would miss the extra point wide right so the score would only be 23-14.

    The Cowboys would end up adding a 57 yard FG by Buehler with 2:21 left in the game to make it 23-17. They would fail to recover an onside kick and Jacksonville would just run out the clock.
